Greatest Rufus Wainwright SongsThe songs that best display Rufus Wainwright's incredible voice and breath-taking talent at songwriting. Unfortunately my 'favourites' list covered 24 songs so these are the 10 I selected.
The Top Ten
I choose this one because it is my third favourite song from Rufus. Memphis Skyline is a masterpiece and does not even show on this list. Same goes for April Fools!
Powerful and heart-wrenching; this song really gets to me every time. It's so sad.
Beautiful moving and powerful
Close your eyes and let this song take you on a journey
The build, oh the build
A very timely and moving song
This song is near perfection.
This Song really makes me cry.
Pure Rufus = Pure Sonic Beauty = Going to a Town
The greatest 'love song' ever written. Makes me cry it's so beautiful.
On the first beats of that drum I was hooked to this song. Pure genius.
A song about sadness. A true work of art this song is.
Such a fun song that everyone can learn to sing to. One that should never be unmentioned.
No one in modern music understands composition the way Rufus does. It's an a decisive opinion, but he is the only contemporary musician I've heard (and I'm counting the likes of Dylan and the Beatles) that comes close to the classical greats. This song (and Little Sister) prove that.
This song is an incredible piece of passion. A song for the much missed Jeff Buckley. Having his way with the piano, Rufus puts us into an emotion that few would want to ever leave.
Amazing, improvisional piano and the melody with the French lyrics sends shivers down my spine.
This has the most amazing orchestral part ever written for a modern song, in my opinion.
The string quartet has the most beautiful harmonies and Rufus' voice and choice of lyrics are simply stunning.
I love this song so much. Everyone should listen to it.
So slow, sad and meaningful. Rufus does sorrow so beautifully.
One of his most incredible, big songs. It was really amazing live, as well.
Why is this not on anyone's top ten of his songs? I love it!
